Hi there,
I have Gen 3 FJR and and the previous owner lowered the bike by using aftermarket linkages. I want to install the original linkages.
Please let me know if you have 1 set for sale.
Thanks
Sal

FYI, the dogbones from 2006-up are the same for an FJR1300A. If memory serves, the center to center holes are 190mm on OEM. In a pinch you could make your own......

or check Ebay... search for "fjr1300 shock linkage" or some variation of that and you'll get results.
Regards,
Mr. BR

Have an extra pair of links. Depending on where you are, I can ship and maybe use your links - if you want.

Please PM me with your contact information.

Hi Eric,
Thanks for the offer. I will try @RaYzerman’s advice first and adjust the aftermarket linkage and see if it works.

Well, you didn't mention "adjustable"..... so you got Soupy's? Adjusting will work.... rear suspension relay arm is about 2.7:1, so 5mm adjustment will get you 13-ish...

Yes, adjusting them is a much better choice as you can customize your ride height - down or up.

BTW, Ray is The Man when it comes to technical knowledge. And he is a most helpful person too - even though he has left the FJR flock. (For a while ;-)
